"We have 3 playmats, including a gym, but this one is large and cushy with lots of room to roll around. Has squeakers and other features built in and folds up nice. We used a very small playmat the first month and the gym occasionally, but mostly fold this up and keep it in the living room."
"Essential if you don't have a dishwasher. I use this about 5 times a day for bottles, breastpump equipment, pacifiers, etc. Fits many types of bottles up to 10 oz (I have Nuk) and is very easy to use/clean."
"We have the whole Skip Hop Treetop friends playmat (& wall stickers, blanket, etc) but the hanging owl you can buy for $9 or less is one of baby's favorite toys to reach for. Playmat & other stroller toys we have are nice quality."
"Great-smelling, natural, all-in-1 wash. The Burt's Bees diaper cream and non-petroleum jelly also worked well for us. Don't like the smell of the matching lotion--we just use Johnson & Johnson for that (much cheaper)."
"Easy to use and comfortable. I recommend having this on hand ready to use (you can always return it sealed/unopened if you decide not to pump). Consider buying a bigger breast shield--the "average" size it comes with is small."
